Simmons ColLae oLlbrarf 

r oreword 

And now in hope we launch our little craft, 

Our Microcosm, laden with the freight 

Of laughter, sighs, and recollections quaint 

Of all the glorious years of '22 ; 

Each page a sail of glowing golden hue, 

In Memory's light, each day a glorious date. 

Oh, readers, class-mates, take it not amiss, 

Our foreword be an afterthought — just this: 

As, in the passing of the college days 

Each year seems better than the last to be, 

Then let us take the pattern of the years 

And, as we pass along our various ways 

Let each succeeding thought, and word, and deed 

That is for Simmons done, be yet the best. 

Sara Henry Stites 

in appreciation of her interest and breadth of vision 
in student problems 

The Class of 1922 
respectfully dedicates this book 

To the Class of 1 922 

AFTER this year you will be teachers rather than pupils; among those who 
guide rather than those who are guided ; for every educated person is by the 
very fact of her education to some extent a leader. Perhaps no time has had greater 
need of intelligent and disinterested leadership than the present. As I think of 
you about to enter upon your professional work, my most earnest wish for you is 
that you may be among those whose lives are an inspiration to progress. 

What are the qualities which must characterize you if you are to help humanity 
forward on the long road from savagery to "the city built to music, therefore never 
built at all, and therefore built forever?" You cannot make intelligent decisions 
for yourselves, much less act as a guide for others, unless your convictions and 
activities are the outcome of knowledge and of unselfish thought for the interests of 
society. Never excuse errors in attitude or act of yours by pleading ignorance of 
conditions. Search out the facts by careful, scholarly inquiry; form your conclu- 
sions without reference to your own immediate interest or pleasure ; wish and work 
only for those social conditions that will bring welfare to the greatest number of 
your fellow-men. If in so doing you find yourselves in the minority, unpopular, 
and numbered among the failures, do not lose faith in your conclusions and courage 
to follow them out ; for a life spent in unselfish work for human progress is successful 
in the truest sense. 

* * * "History's pages but record 
Our death grapple in the darkness twixt old systems and the Word ; 
Truth forever on the scaffold, Wrong forever on the throne. 
Yet that scaffold sways the future, and beside the dim unknown, 
Standeth God within the shadow, keeping watch above His own. 

Then to side with Truth is noble, when we share her wretched crust, 
Ere her cause bring fame and profit, and 'tis prosperous to be just; 
Then it is the brave man chooses, while the coward stands aside, 
Doubting in his abject spirit, till his Lord is crucified, 
And the multitude makes virtue of the faith they had denied."

Which most leave undone, or despise." 




Lois Martha Algeb 


Continued residence in Freshman houses has given Lois a certain dignity of bearing 
requisite to upperclassmen who are continually in the view of college yearlings. Then 
too she is a Household Ee-er, which implies immaculate whiteness of appearance and a 
knowledge of calories and other personal data. But don't stop at that — you don't know 
the half of it! Lois's other side figures conspicuously at football games, dances and 
other festive occasions.

For two years Marian has reigned supreme in Student's House (woe to the sinner 
w r ho forgot to take her slip off!) and during that time many men have come, sat beneath 
that soft rose-shaded light, and gone — to come again! Marian makes clever rose- 
shaded hats too, and wears them to Army-Navy games, and such-like incidental pleas- 
ures which seem to spring up around her path.

from classes. But if you wish to distinguish which is Doris A, just ask for the instruc- 
tions of the proper way to smile. With a lift of her eyebrows Doris A will elucidate the 
above knowledge, which she acquired, by chance, in her study of reference books.

"Dot 1 

It isn't the easiest thing in the world to commute from Hull every day, arrive on 
time (more or less) and still keep a good disposition, yet Dot has done the seemingly 
impossible. One look at that Palm Olive eompleNion and those dreamy eyes, trans- 
plants us in a moment to the banks of the Nile. But hold that look a little longer, and 
you'll catch that mischievous twinkle which "brightens the corner" even in the middle 
of the dullest of Congressional records.

Eva Baker 


A little girl with dark bobbed hair, a propensity for arguing and a readiness to 
understand the other fellow's point of view, that's Eve. Her Academic success, with 
lots of ideas on history and economics, is supplemented by interesting experiences in 
Social Service case work.

Hazel furnishes more or less of the brilliancy for which her particular crowd is

Charlotte Dexter Barr 

Charlotte came to us our Junior year, and usurped the position of student-matron 
at Pete. Every night (including Sundays) we are lulled to sleep by the sound of her 
nervous fingers passing gently over the typewriter keys. Almost anyone, impelled by 
morbid curiosity, will find her either at this fiendish play, or calmly adding dignity to 
Miss Pray's reception room.

Marjorie Barrett 


"A lough is worth a hundred groans in any rnarket." 
Hail to the coffee-expert of Pete! Above the subdued voices of ordinary mortals 
we hear a loud, habitual, indescribable laugh. Sure, it's Barrett. Her Secretarial 
career is bounded on the North by tragic experiences in Shorthand and Typewriting, 
and on the South by startling triumphs in Accounts, while the East and West are divided 
equally between "that tailored effect" and oral English.

Martha Barrow 


Mart's a parcel of pep, true love of fun and frolic, and twenty-two's expert on or- 
chestras. She couldn't have chosen a better debut for her shortened locks than to don 
a soldier's cap and trip briskly and blithely across our time-honored stage. Frivolity, 
though, flies to the four winds when it comes to real work, for there's no task assigned 
Mart that she has ever left unfinished.

Any scrap from "Benny's notebook" reveals her as she is — good-natured. If you

Juniors. And such a glorious find it was! Emily's ways are always gentle, thoughtful, 
and sweet. In fact her sweetness has such magnetic radiance that "we are proud of her— 
not envious — when we learn that for more than one term she captures all As.

'Bow- Wow" 

// anybody here loves Simmons 
It's Bow-wow-wow-wow-wow. 
Loyal defender of Simmons in general, and the classes of '20 and '22 in particular, 
Bow Wow thinks life in college is certainly grand. For this reason, and also because 
she has a voice that rivals Louise Homer's, hair that puts Billy Burke to shame, and 
the general get-up of a Gibson girl, we recommend her to the Hall of Fame.

Harriet Payson Bourne "Harry" 

Once ye humble scribe heard Hattie— I beg pardon, there is only one thing that so 
far as we have ever found out put Harriet out of perfect good humor, and that is to be 
publicly referred to as "Hattie" — but as I was saying, I once heard Harriet (I have to 
live near her) say as she stalked down the stairs, really quite wrathfully down the stairs; 
"I guess I'll swear I'm so mad." So I trailed after her, prepared for the worst. But all 
I heard was: "OH — Ev — el — yn."

Marj is always ready to do anything for you she can — and there isn't much she 
can't do! If you want somebody to drive a nail or sing a song or paint a picture a la 
Ma>:field Parrish, just ask Marjorie if you want it done right. If you want somebody 
to crawl under your bed and make weird noises when you are about to fall asleep, or tell 
you a story about "bites," or send you after a book called "Twenty years in a Hot- 
house," again we suggest that you go to Marj about it. 

Coupled with an unusual share of ability in all the "fine arts" is an honesty and 
sincere straight-forwardness that makes Marj one of the truest members of 1922.

Though she may seem quiet and unobtrusive in the corridors or the library (would 
others were so!) behind the door of her room Dot can and does expound her theories of 
education in long harangues, delivered in ringing tones after 10:30 p. m. Dot is one of 
those who did their bit for '22 by culling A's consistently and being admitted to the 
sacred portals of the Academy. She even jolted us into appreciative respect by win- 
ning the Junior scholarship. And then she has the colossal nerve to tell us she is scared 
to get her report!

"What could be sweeter" than little Dot Buck when she gets up to deliver flawless

with her hockey stick? Would there were more like this girl, for she is steady as a rock, 
dependable, lovable, in short, a lot of -ables combined. What a joy she must be to the 
Secretarial department! A leaven in the lump, as 'twere; a worthy product of a worthy 
institution. Dot bears her Academic honors with a shy modesty, and no matter how 
badly she shows up the rest of us, we just can't help liking her.

Loretta Julia Burke 

If Loretta ever once slipped from the straight and narrow path in her four years at

work as thoroughly and has as obliging a disposition would not look every day for those 
little wings w r hich are sure to grow? And that contagious Irish brogue of hers has 
as much claim to perfection as her "professional grade."

"Elizabeth, pick up those ravellings," means that Gertrude Christine is home from

nothing happens. It is just the Butler-Keyes combination, and it works to perfection. 
Trudy reading a perfect report in meeting, or walking down Tremont street, eyes 
straight ahead, is always distractingly neat, stylish, and good to look upon. The idol 
of the Freshmen, she is ready for anything, provided she can go to Ginter's for her cup

"Varium et mutabile semper femina" said the poet long ago, and if you don't be-

sically fleeting as a wandering wind, here today and gone tomorrow. The only way to 
tell what way the wind is blowing is by consulting that infallible weather-vane, her 
correspondence, which is at all times heavy. Her dates and her gowns — to say nothing 
of that settlement class! — are the daily topics of conversation at Pete.

she can be serious when she's teaching her settlement class. The continued state of

called upon for the more serious things of college.

has taken efficient charge. Quiet and unassuming in manner, an irrepressible sense of

starred in Dramatics, plays a whale of a game at hockey, and is an expert dancing part-

is proof against not merely one year of accounts, but even closer acquaintance with Mr. 
Hittenhouse and his methods in the second term. Martha is our idea of the perfect

close proximity of the "ivories."

in fact she has what might almost, be termed a grin. She's '22's best little promoter — 
give her any scheme to work up from Mic Show to the "Daily Dessertation," and 
watch her work — if you can really see things at such speed. Her pronounced weakness 
for "dressing up," and all forms of dramatics from scene painting, to "leads" has been 
demonstrated many times. Doesn't it make you glow all over just to hear her heartily 
ejaculate "Say, — ! — I've got an idea! !" and you know another great project is going to

marks and characteristics as if she had been born under the shadow of Beacon Hill, 
including an Atlantic Monthly vocabulary and a propensity for arguing. Jean is one 
of the I. W. W.'s (Invisible Willing Workers) of the class and is always ready to put 
her time, her ability and all her possessions at anyone's disposal. And for pure, 100% 
spunk, she can't be beat!

Not to insinuate that she could not hold up her end in a noisy crowd — life in Simmons 
dormitories takes care of that! When Gerry is called upon to relate her experiences to 
English 70 she rises with the look of a startled faun, and then convulses her audience 
with tales of adventure — falling down an elevator shaft, for example!

of years' advantage over the most of us. Yet she aspires to dignity, and no doubt we

there are vague indications that she has a serious side. That is, we may, providing 
there is no outside interference!

perhaps the most noteworthy of all was the direction of the unruly band of dorm-

Although she loves Simmons, its routine chaffs her roaming spirit. Of course, we will 
admit there is no thrill in shorthand when it is like play; so she digs into Spanish and all 
the languages so that she'll be able to chat even with an aborigine, should she meet one

Ruth Giblin 

"There is no better greeting than a smile" is pictured in Ruth's true optimism. We 
never see her when she isn't either smiling or laughing. Even in junior year, when she 
would a-skating go, and broke her leg, Ruth took the consequences as a huge joke. 
Are there many who could so blithely take Dr. Eldridge's dictation at 120 per, after 
months of absence?

Can we ever forget, I ask you, the smells and the tho'ts of Gladys' parties, at which

roast chicken's anatomy! Give us an easy one — on the style of Mr. Turner's acknowl- 
edged easy quizzes. And speaking of food, to the physical, the aesthetic and the 
romantic, who remembers the card that was once found in a candy box? And do any 
of us know of a girl who wrote home every day for four years? Three guesses, and 
there's only one answer.

Humorist and Entertainer. From all reports we should judge that things have consid-

Ardis is the recruiting officer for the Church. Many a poor heathen has been led 
into the fold (to see the new minister) by the patient persistence of Ardis. Probably 
she is preparing for the missionary field. But hist! Do you hear the rasping voice 
from below calling — "Miss Glee-sun! ! Caller in Thir-r-r-tee! !" And the answering 
wail- — "Ye-s-s — I'll be ri-i-ght down!" Ardis is always ready anyone in trouble; 
her specialty is "homesicks."

If we were asked to plot a coat-of-arms for Lena it would be something like this:

(6) upper left hand corner, a volume of poetry, ancient and modern authors includ- 

(c) Across the bottom a heart as big as space permits — or maybe a handclasp and 
friendly brown eyes meeting yours. 

(d) Across the top simply the motto "Sinceretas." 

And even then we would only have begun to express the liking we feel for her. 
We'll have to leave the rest to Gert and Charlotte to show by their loyalty and love 
for her.

portrayal of the "Transformation of a Simmons Girl" at Sophomore Luncheon' Shall 
we ever forget her presentation of "Lady Billy" with Dot Rowden and Pudge Barrett 
at the Senior Housewarming? With memories of aching sides and near-hysterics we 
gasp "Never!" To be privileged to read her "Onion Sandwich." the North Hall spas- 
modic periodical, is a treat: to hear Frenchie rave after a visit to the Boston Post 
editorial rooms is another. In after years, when we read her snappy stuff syndicated 
in the newspapers we shall visualize Frenchie shepherding photographers round the

her hair! Don't you want to run your fingers through it and muss it up? From all

she turned from Secretarial to Social Work, and she's just as fresh and sweet and un-

Providence knew what was best for us. alright, when it sent us our quota of Jo's, 
and this Jo has lived up to all the expectations which her name called forth when she 
came to be one of us in 1920 — straight from the Hoosier State. Her friendly smile and 
happy disposition are always in evidence, and, coupled with a slenderness that is the 
despair of the "Daily Dozen Squad," and that red-gold hair with its ever-perfect 
marcelle, they are her most distinguishing features. Although she's one of our "dash- 
ing secretaries." somehow we can more readilv picture her tripping with airv grace to 
the music of the dance, or gladdening the ears (and hearts) of South Hall with her faith- 
ul violin.

"The perfect lady, poised and sweet," is Beulah; this is your first impression. 
Then you are conscious of a pair of very dark brown eyes looking straight-forwardly at 
you. In all, Beulah is the type so rarely found — for how many of us can claim the above 
honors, plus being premier athlete-in-chief of Simmons College? Just as quietly, mod- 
estly, and reservedly as she walks into your heart, so in the middle of her sophomore 
year did she win that coveted "S", emblematic of her athletic prowess. As a House-

from this incorrigible optimist the usual facetious remark, delivered in her own particu- 
lar brand of slang — as inimitable as the style of Homer and the Bards of old. 

Once, though, she touched the heights (or is it depths?) of tragedy, when, her lank 
form swathed in becoming red flannels, purple socks, and henna wig, to cap it all, she 
warbled the pathetic strains of "Pippin, Won't You come Back, for Egge Vue 11 Never

she appeared she vanished from 300 The Fenway, and now that flashing, fascinating, 
perplexing personality of hers vents its energy daily in social service work down town, 
and nightly in ingenious mischief at 22 Pete.

"Little Old New York" has set its stamp on Ginny, with her drawl, her "savoir

and conversation, which she does most charmingly. A very sweet and capable Sopho- 
more president was Ginny — remember her as King in May Day? But since then nu- 
merous social engagements and her school work have occupied her time, and we get but

the rest of it. Though one of the latest additions to the ranks of '22, Charlotte fitted

Ruth Jordan 


Did you ever know anyone so brimful of wit and jokes? The time never lags where 
little Ruthie is. If you're passing along a corridor at school, or in your room perched on 
a chair in the attitude of study, Ruth will make her appearance and say, "Let me tell 
you a good joke I heard today." It verily does seem as though Ruth must have taken 
the Library course, she has her jokes and funny little bits so well catalogued in her cere- 
brum, ready for use at a moment's notice. 

Ruth surely keeps her eyes open when she shuffles the paste-board, and you have to 
watch your step when you're dancing with her or playing bridge.

Babette is an Al product of the breezy, western town of Houghton, on the one

an irresistible combination: — Babette of the Irene Castle dancing and pose; Babette 
of the withering glance when some unlucky mortal springs a joke that reeks of must; 
Babette who can convince the most acid instructor that while Babette's remarks may 
not have been to the point, they are vastly superior. But that doesn't begin to explain 
Babette. Crisp, careful, and clever, she can do dramatics or hockey, and all the while 
keep up a conversation that would make a professional entertainer give up in despair.

Alice is one of those rare girls who can do such a number of things well. To make a

little problem in higher mathematics, chemistry, or physics. But the incongruous part 
is in spite of the Copley and Somerset influences, and all the other influences, how she 
can triumphantly bring home those 99.44-100% marks to all the family three times a 
year. Clever girl!

The thing that goes the farthest toward making life worth while 
That costs the least, and does the most, is just a pleasant smile.

Frances Klein 


Another old adage gone to smash! If there's any trade this Jack hasn't mastered 
let it speak now or forever hold its peace. For four years we have, with child-like faith, 
depended on her to break track records, make posters, manage successful hockey and 
basketball seasons, turn up once in a blue moon at Glee and Mandolin practice and glean 
Simmons news by the column for no less than two newspaprs. Her modesty, all the 
while, grows in proportion to her accomplishments. And yet she is a devotee of the 
dread Science course, and rakes in A's with a calmness that amazes us all. If any 
further proof of her ability is needed, just stop a moment and contemplate this Mic! 
Fran thinks there's no fun like work, and she throws herself into everything she 
undertakes with the same wholehearted ness that makes her stay and practice throwing 
baskets 'til 7:30, thereby missing her supper. Mic is Fran's crowning glory, and will 
last long after the ink has dried from those A's, and the cheering on the hockey field has 
died away.

size doesn't hinder Doris from caging baskets with ease in the Gym, or harvesting per-

"Billy" "Bill" "William" 

"Oh where are you going, charming Billy?" runs the old song, and perhaps before

that is, if cherries are thick enough in the vicinity of Lake Chabog — Chagug — oh well, 
Lake Cbabug — etc. out Webster way. We who listened to Bill's entertaining orals in 
English 70 would just love to hear her delicious little accent twine itself around that 
name! Four years of Secretarialism have left Billy as round and rosy as ever, their 
effect having been counteracted by refreshing intervals of Bowdoin house parties (oh

gentle, too altogether pinkcheeked and lady-like for the y to be omitted! To her

"Jo" "Josie" 

Jo has been the pivot around which '22 has swung— with her at the helm we would 
feel ready to do anything and dare anything. One thing we did, or rather Jo did, was 
the Student Government Conference — and its great success is to her credit alone (for 
in our eyes Jo was almost the whole Conference). 

Two of the many things Jo is noted for are: (1) that marvelous blush-rose complex- 
ion of hers, and (2) her ability to do the most herculean tasks speedily, efficiently, and 
with a supreme unequalled modesty. 

Charm, tact, lovable-ness all are Jo's. Her casual way of going through life serene- 
ly, dropping watches, pocket books, fur coats has caused many a heart-quake and many 
a good laugh when the suspense was over, — for Providence seems to have Jo in her care.

Jimmy. In either case her pen is usually leaking on paper of some sort.

Somehow or other Marguerita manages to commute from Needham, laden with 
all the paraphernalia of an embryo secretary, and yet look and act as unruffled and un- 
hurried as if she lived at Mrs. Jack Gardiner's. 

Nothing like having a classmate for a future sister-in-law, is there, Marguerita! 
The prenuptial relationship may prove convenient. You and Eleanor have more than 
one common bond.

"Ken" "Kennie" 

Mary had two little friends, 

They lived up on fourth floor, 
They'd follow her to any ends, 

They Mary did adore. 

She catalogues with ease and speed, 

Her aim — to suit Miss Blunt, 
To find a better running-mate 

Those Singers would have to Hunt.

"My de-ar, isn't it ter — riBLE!" A high soprano startles out of our satisfied com- 
placency but a good-natured giggle greatly softens the effect. Mabel's favorite indoor 
sport is making fudge, fortunately for her friends, and by popular vote she is the cham- 
pion of the world in her line. He'r specialty is coming back late with a long list of good 
times to tell about. There is a certain Sunday feature writer in this town who fully 
appreciates her budgeting abilities, but sdmehow said featurer has the idea that Mabel 
is retiring!

Florence Anna Ludemann 


Out of the West came a slim, tall maiden, a regular tea-dance girl, to try her hand 
at the Technicalities of Simmons. Florence was secluded in the wilds of 11 Gorham 
during her first year here, but now she is a live wire in the transfer family of First Floor 
North, where she daily pleases the eye with her lovely blonde marcels, and nightly 
trips the light fantastic to volunteer syncopations in the living-room.

Mary Webb McAnarney 

"Gather ye rosebuds while ye may 
Far time is still a-flying." 
The authoress of this write-up does not have a copy of the Rubaiyat of Omar 
Khayyam, which is Mary Webb's favorite poem, so she can not give a sample of it here. 
But the above quotation expresses too, although rather tamely, her philosophy of life. 
To give her credit, she is serious — sometimes — almost— for a few minutes, but it doesn't 
last long, and it never seems quite real. So we are safe in saying she is always happy, 
practically always frivolous, and never anything but entertaining and refreshing.

Marion, though mild in appearance, has hidden qualities occasionally brought

of coffee in the morning.

understanding such as are needed to make Civic League just the big thing in the Sim- 
mons calendar it should be. Social Work and Civic League are a combination which 
would fit a girl of Lillian's capabilities for some big public office, but there are indica- 
tions that those capabilities will find their scope in the radius of domesticity.

"Gertie" "Marty" 

Gertrude wins the prize for being the speediest girl in '22— in changing her mind. 
But then that is what makes life interesting! If you should ever be lost, and wandering 
about forlornly, and you should hear a certain laugh — Gert's laugh — and then a voice 

saying "Now now now," etc., you could be positive that you had found a friend. 

Gertrude's laugh and ever-present smile haven't faded a bit during her sojourn at Sim- 
mons — only grown louder and broader respectively (as she becomes familiar with our 
peculiar natures).

"Where's Ruth Martin? Paging Ruth Martin!" is the call that echoes nightly

tions. There are few like her, who can so gracefully finger the keys. Ruth is "right 
there" with the iron hand in the velvet glove as House Chairman in South. She 
faithfully does whatever duties come up and— did we say faithful? How about trie 
music for track songs composed year after year for the sake of '22? Ruth is "there"

Emily Lister Mitchell 

Whenever the clatter of tongues and dishes begin to wear, or the soup and muffins 
begin to lose their flavor, Emily packs her little week-end case and hies her to Revere, to 
listen to what the wild waves— and others — have to say. 

Though Emily's a Senior Sec and undoubtedly has her busy spells, she always man- 
ages to look placid and content — would we knew the secret of such calm! But we think 
it's hers alone, and resides somewhere in Pennsylvania at present.

When we shoulder our books and with a long sigh prepare to trudge wearily back

tea-dance girl like Ruth. But we're awfully glad someone around here has time to 
stay as serene and as faultlessly attired on all occasions as she does. Ruth also finds it 
necessary, by way of diversion to go off on an annual spree to Port Huron or Annapolis. 
We wonder what big thrill is on its way to help her tide over 1923!?

One of "Do's" characteristics is the inquiring eye she bends on all who cross her 
path; perhaps it is a habit acquired by constant delving into mysteries of Science. 

Fortunately, L and M are contiguous in the alphabet, for "Do" and "Vi" could 
not bear even the separation of a letter. If you want one of them, follow the rule of 
looking in the other's room, for it will never fail you — neither will their cordial greeting.

good company, Marge is always obliging,— from going on a three-day tramp at Thanks-

You might ait beside Ruth for a couple of months and never exchange a word, but 
nevertheless she would have you all tagged and classified, for nothing gets by that calm,

conducts settlement classes Ruth tackles all the jobs that come her way; and when 
even the unusual task of navigating an exceedingly good-looking man through Junior 
Prom failed to fuss her, we gave up hopes!

recite her lesson to Dr. Underwood in French 3B? Now she would like to have us

Alyra is noted for her reserve; a reserve that approaches almost to shyness. How-

well-meaning daughters of '22.

Sure is there anyone anywhere can come up to the likes of our Oki? Indeed 'tis

wit to pick her to run us and our affairs after the shipwreck of Freshman mid-years, and 
follow it up by making her Senior president? 

There's roses in her cheeks and the old Nick himself in her eyes, — faith we'd blarney 
her forever and a day but we dare not, for the violet itself is no more modest than our 
Oki. 'Tis all we can say, that we love her for the cheery and the merry joke she will toss 
us, and the kind word in time of trouble; and we respect her for the clever head she's 
got to manage us so neatly, and for the worth of her that's pure gold, no less. 'Tis 
the best we can express ourselves — and praise be, she's our Oki!

But she did have to one time, — discuss her source of inside "dope" on the American

devoted Sunday caller, and should Ruth be unable to entertain him in Andover, those

the "march." However, contrary to the common belief that "haste makes waste," 
Norma's haste is the kind that counts. But even speed has its limitations and the 
frenzied gathering about the table in the Student's Room two hours before Math, 
forced even Norma to "make haste slowly."

ment, — not a bit of it! She is just original and very clever — and just Hermine, and we 
wouldn't have her changed for worlds. In her work on the Review, she has done ex- 
ceptionally well, and many of us have often listened open-mouthed to her English 
achievements, whether it be a Scotch ballad or an exposition on the relative merits of 
Mark Twain and Leonard Merrick. With her mass of general knowledge, and her ex- 
ceptional gift bestowed by the Muse, Hermine should shine as one of the leading satel-

marcel is her trade mark, is as n uch a part of her as her friendly personality! Many an

peevish old men being soothed into good humor by its perfect rhythm as they gaze at 
Ruth's head bent over a catalogue.

There's a modest, good-sport, and alw ays-ready-to-help girl we call D'rish — and 
maybe we don't think she's just about all right! She and Peg have weathered the years 
together in the approved Darby and Joan style, and a better suited couple we've yet to 
see. When D'rish isn't writing up minutes or lending her able support in basketball, she's 
generally to be found, casting a golden spell over her listeners by rendering "The Love 
Nest" (or other popular ballad) in that heavenly sweet and clear soprano voice of hers. 
Her disposition is usually as mild as can be, but let anyone call her "Penelope," or come 
back from New York without sending her the customary postal of Grant's tomb — and 
see what happens. Much as (we hope) she loves us, the call of Rockland and the Reo 
Sedan (and, we suspect, — of still other charms) rarely fail to bring a response.

Jo was one of the first of us to defy our families and our professional grade and bob

typical of her. She just goes on animatedly serene, if you know what we mean, manag- 
ing anything from the Center dance to the obituary of Ginny's mouse! Just because 
she is well-known for her literary abilities doesn't mean that Jo isn't a match for any 
class problem that she has ever had to straighten out for us. She has exploded the 
accounting theory that besides a reserve, one has a reserve for depreciation. (Jo's 
reserves are men.)

Phebe Bennett Romig 

Theb" "P. B.' 

Like Napoleon Phebe seeks to counteract small stature by lordly bearing, and a 
rear view of her passing down the corridor brings to mind vague impressions of say, a 
political personage. Phebe swings a mean stick on the hockey field, and when that ball 
with a mighty crack speeds bullet-like down the field for fifty yards or so, her team- 
mates breathe a fervent prayer of relief that Phebe plays for and not against '22. 
"Pheb" handles a tennis racquet cleverly, also a fountain pen, and points and credits 
are the least of her worries. Intense in likes and dislikes is Phebe, and she would cheer- 
fully run on errands to the ends of the earth for those who are lucky enough to have 
won her undying devotion.

Dorothy Rowden 

"Rowden" "Dot" 

A blonde whirlwind typifying jubilant enthusiasm bursts in upon our calm philo-

like this: "Hello, kids! By chowder, I'm tired. Listen, let me tell you, I've met a 
new man and — say, can you sit at the Hall Table to-morrow fourth hour and take 
pledges for Endowment? Got anything to eat? Honest, we've got to make a better 
showing for Endowment. By chowder, this is good cake!" The best we can hope for

Dot, alas, this year is torn between second floor North, habitat of a mighty peppy 
crowd, and third floor South where dwells her old-time crony, Ruth Martin, sharer of 
many troubles Home Economical. Consequently she does her best to share and share 
alike for she is in great demand in both places. The post-vacation appearance of a frat 
pin leads us to conclude that outside opinion concurs with the above!

Frances Susan Russell 


From her bobbed blonde hair to her twinkling feet Fran is a bundle of pep and energy 
— always ready for the next thing that has to be done — never wavering in her interest 
and enthusiasm. How she ever finds time between athletics and cheer leading to push 
the literary pen, is still a mystery, but, were it not for her divine inspiration, a large 
proportion of the class would have gone write-up-less. And who dares to say that bob- 
bed haired people aren't efficient? Her management of the showcase and sophomore 
rings challenges any such statement.

Madeleine Harriet Shields 

Four years ago there came to Simmons College a gentle maiden named Madeleine 
She smiled shyly upon English and French and whispered of a bowing acquaintance 
with Physics, but as time went on there appeared upon the scene the fascinating twins — 
Shorthand and Typewriting — and then did this gentle maiden cast discretion to the 
winds and embrace them so heartily that no one else had a chance. And now it is 
rumored that the Underwood Company is fast approaching bankruptcy buying medals 
for Madeleine. And speaking of medals, if there are any to be presented for a happy 
disposition Madeleine can claim these too.

Calm and unruffled, Mabel has spent four years in our midst. When all the rest

and collected, without a hair misplaced, and with her work all done and O. K. And 
yet she has time on the side to take in all the dances at Tech, and almost anything else 
that suits her fancy. She has a good sense of humor, and a hearty laugh — we can prove 
the latter by referring the reader to a certain long table in the Lunchroom, when some 
of the illustrious '22s get together— and talk it over.

Dorothy Smith 

"Dot' 1 "Dotty" "Dee" 

We procrastinate, we hesitate, we approach with misgivings the pleasantly delicate 
and difficult task of "writing" Dorothy Smith. Her many moods, sides, arid talents 
cannot be^ summarized: one can only call to mind infantile antics: musical moments 
alone in North Hall living-room; Review poetry of delicate fancy; side-splitting pessi- 
misms, cynically uttered for the benefit of the whole table and neighboring tables; and 
impromptu entertaining staged at house-warmings, initiations, and other affairs where 
mirth doth call and Dorothy respondeth. 

It's no use trying to cover her scholastic points — she has met her Waterloo with 
the rest of us; moreover she has been the Waterloo in argument of more than one

thoughts of something doing, whether it's a dance, a man, a feed, or a cut. 

Smithie is very speedy, and is noted for her rapid-fire action on the piano, where 
her fingers will fly as fast as her tongue can, which is going some!

Who said anything about mishaps? Ruth surely has had her share of them in her 
short life — just mention the hat episode, for instance. Some people would wring their 
hands in despair under such circumstances — not so Ruth. She just enjoys them; her 
sense of humor is keen, and she passes much merriment on to us by relating her ex- 
periences as jolly good jokes.

What could be more uplifting than Spi's long lectures on self-sacrifice? From 
November onwards Pete House heard much about giving up Sundays walking in town, 
and dispensing with extravagant ways in general — all for the one and same Student 
Friendship Fund. 

The only thing about Spi is that she has a maddening tendency to hide her light 
under a bushel. But lest glimmers of a halo appear, we will merely hint at sundry pri- 
vate entertainments, and suggest that the cut on Spi's intellectual forehead might have 
been received through contact with the serving-room durnb-waiter on the night of '23's

Eleanor Marie Stevens 

Beauty experts claim that the combination of blond hair and brown eyes is ex- 
tremely rare, and very dangerous (to the opposite sex). We can't say whether the 
experts are right or not; we do know, however, that Eleanor has this rare combination, 
and that, judging from appearances, the rest of the adage holds true in this case, also. 
There was not a branch of the service, during war-times, that was not represented on her 
list — but since then, the list has diminished to one, and a single frat pin (plus the soli- 
taire), has taken the place of the many pins of yore. College has not been slighted, 
either; Eleanor has been very faithful to her work, and has earned the just reward — 
good marks and an easy conscience.

Dot must have brought rays of California sunshine East with her, imprisoned in

couldn't forget her pleasant personality. 

She's as serene as her own home state but there's none of the "manana" spirit in 
Dot for she has shown her energy and capabilities more than once.

Jay was crowned business manager of Mic — and when this volume comes to light the 
crown will be of laurel! 

Alas, alack! this same senior year change of residence caused the firm of Stuart &

Evelyn is always buzzing around like that little biological insect she resembles —

subject, from the best way to raise cats to the most scientific and proper manner of eat- 
ing lettuce salad. No girls, you can't change her mind — she states facts only — (from 
known and unknown origin). But when you're sick, why even a nurse couldn't hand 
out dope better than our Evelyn, nor could they make you more at home when you're 
feeling out of it.

This certainly applies to Elinor, and most likely was written in reference to her. 
Did you ever see anyone so persistent in dogging the steps of the illusive Mr. Collester? 
If you see an excited little person dashing up, gasping "Where?? Which way???" you 
know who it is, and what it wants. And you dumbly point after it. Elinor's new ideas 
and faithful work, have revivified the Review, raising it to the Height of Hilarity — or 
something closely akin. The Review is certainly lucky to have Elinor at the wheel. 
And when the day endeth, and night falleth, she still worketh, for she who edits the

The two problems that faced Ruth when she came to us last year were:

2. To live down the appellation, "Sue Templeton's sister," both of which — and 
much more ino the bargain — she has accomplished to her own satisfaction and our ex- 
treme glee. That well-known spick and span, ultra-efficient looking exterior is off-set 
by a dangerous twinkle lurking in her eye — for everything from Remingtons to fox- 
trots is included in the category of her triumphs. And speaking of triumphs! Ask 
Ruth how it feels to be the "Mother of a President"— (of Student Government.)

We defy anyone to break down the armor of Mary's good disposition! 'Tis im-

She has an uncanny ability to read back Shorthand notes, and goes into everything 
with an earnestness of intention — witness the "daily dozen" diet squad. 

Some things can worry her (we doubt if anything could rile her) — but nevertheless, 
we hear she is going to start a school devoted entirely to teaching business methods.

Institute presumably has his eye on the same seat — aye, verily, that is not a very peace- 
ful way to end the day! However, Eva keeps up under it pretty well, and seems to 
find this old world, Simmons included, a pretty good place after all!

shined shoes for Maqua. Yet there is never a shade of the prune or prig about Kay; 
she is every bit as ready for a whale of a good time as any of us. In short, we would call 
her a real prize package, but — avaunt, ye man! The lucky number has been drawn!

yards of taffeta, or the "makings" for fudge, whose "divinity" is unquestioned, isn't 
worth mentioning. We spell Current Events in all caps, since Judy took them in hand. 
Whether she's making decorations for a party or just doing one of the many little acts 
of kindness she performs so silently and gladly, we know she'll put it over and it will 
be a sure-fire hit.

We don't know how Swarthmore ever came to let go of Harriet Junior year, but for

the corridor? Not so you'd notice it! But even Harry's good nature could not recover 
from the "gingham halfback" episode, and her athletic aspirations were nipped in the 
bud. The Swarthmoric element at 22 Pete has been a large factor in the doin's there 
this year, with Harry and her compatriot, Jack Horner, to keep things moving.

Whitty nevertheless. Anna has bad four years' training to make her just the right 
ballast for her room-mate, and the team of Kay and Whit is another that will go down 
in class history. 

To revert to Whitty's scholastic characteristics, we might mention in passing that 
her training at Simmons has been noticeably Teck-mca\.

Some girls fit their vocations like a sleeve in a vest, but Dot belongs in a library as

question she will be as much in demand. 

She is neat, is Dot, and sweet, ha! ha! handsome, and fair, very fair; her blonde 
braids shine like golden taffy. Remember the time those golden braids blossomed into 
a real professional marcel? It created such a disturbance that the beauteous undula-

happy anticipation of their reappearance for another Prom.

No wonder we stared when Katy first slipped shyly into a class room. Some of us 
wondered whose little sister was looking for her, but Katy really was a Freshman, 
bound to be a sober secretary. She even had some horn-rimmed specks to prove it. 
But the years have not aged her; she still has the baby boice, the childish ways, and the 
general aspect of a big French doll. 

But oh my, Katy slings a wicked line when it comes to the men (living in a college 
town gives ample practice). And those eyes when they get to rolling — !

The man who wrote "By Jingo" and her sister "Chilli Bean" could write a song to 
rival both if he could see our Jean. With an independent toss of her bobbed head, and 
a perfunctory glance from those "meet-me-later" eyes, she is occasionally to be seen in 
the corridors or classrooms. But the collegiate atmosphere is not her sphere. It takes 
a couple of jazzy whistles and a saxophone to express the extent of her pep and ginger. 
When she and Evelyn and the piano get together in close harmony at Pete, they surely 
liven up the landscape (to put it mildly).

Student Government Association 

Officers for Student Government for 1 92 1 -1922

WE have Student Government at Simmons. Students make the rules and 
establish the customs that govern all our extra-curricula activities from track 
day to keeping quiet hours and cheating in examinations. Our organization is one 
of the best (established at the Conference !) , our rules reasonable and our traditions 
beautiful or entertaining as the case may be. But frankly there is not much thought 
or enthusiasm for Student Government from the average girl. Shall we drop it or 
shall we all give a little more time and cooperation? This year the Council tried 
to adapt our organization to the growing needs of the College, and have provided a 
better opportunity for every girl to express her wishes and opinions on the rules 
that are passed. Let everyone of us do our part toward making Student Govern- 
ment mean what it says.

ONE of the pleasantest, most exciting, most inspiring things that has happened 
at Simmons for some time was the annual conference of the Women's Inter- 
collegiate Association for Student Government which was held here in November. 
Everyone knows how we all enjoyed the social side of the event — meeting the inter- 
esting and attractive girls from the other colleges, sharing with them our dormi- 
tories turned into a gay and festive hotel which had all the luxuries of the Waldorf 
Astoria, and all that. But the conference really worked, too ! The meetings were 
most interesting and instructive to the delegates who attended them (J . Lindemuth 
and T. Taylor represented Simmons) . They were held to take up such problems as 
those pertaining to general Student Government affairs such as organization, in- 
cluding organization for city and country colleges, coeducational colleges, colleges 
with dormitories, honor system, punishment for breaking rules, general college prob- 
lems such as relations with the faculty, intercollegiate relations, and so on. The 
results of these discussions have been published in book form for the use of all those 
interested in Student Government. 

Simmons girls felt the effects of the conference in their increased interest in 
Student Government as a movement in all the colleges of the country, and in the 
practical plans and suggestions which were worked out in our organization as a 
result of the conference.

Dormitory Government 


Margaret Gallinger

DORMITORY Government is dormitory life. The privileges, the restrictions, 
and even the pleasures which are ours have Dormitory Government as their 

Like every other worth-while organization, Dormitory Government is progres- 
sive. Just as proof — there are the new Senior and Junior privileges. How glad 
we all are for these, and how anxious we are for them to be so successful that they 
may lead to greater ones. We must remember that it is only in proportion to our 
deserts that we can expect reward and that abused privileges lead to nothing higher. 

The restrictions, too, which Dormitory Government imposes are more valuable 
to us than we realize, for all through our lives, we shall be, in some measure, restrict- 
ed. We will be surrounded by rules, both written and unwritten. We are never 
free to do as we wish entirely. Dormitory Government trains us in self-govern- 
ment, without which there can be only unruliness.

THE Honor System or Honor Spirit, is the necessary part of every organization 
or activity of college life. We just couldn't imagine our Student Government 
or our Dormitory Government without it. It truly exists not as the result of cer- 
tain resolutions adopted by the majority, but as an outgrowth of a universal spirit 
of honor and a sense of individual responsibility. 

Under the Honor System we are trusted with the rights of higher authorities 
and must meet the obligations and fulfill the responsibilities of that trust. It is 
easy to be honest when that is the established custom. To make Honor an estab- 
lished custom is to inculcate not an Honor System but an all-pervading, all- 
embracing Honor Spirit, extending from the smallest things to the greatest.

The Endowment Board 

THIS year we had no Bazaar to work for and draw results from. But gradually, 
surely, our Endowment Fund has been growing. Returns in the fall were 
encouraging, both in pledges and payments, with 1922 in the lead. 

We tried and carried out successfully two novel ideas in the fall. One was 
"Pencil Day," when Alums and Undergraduates canvassed the city, and sold 
Simmons pencils. This effort netted about $4,500. Then two weeks later we sold 
home-made candy in several Boston hotels. This was also very much of a success. 
But the amount taken in at the time was not the only good result. On both these 
Saturdays we had a good chance to "talk Simmons" to any number of inquiring 
and interested purchasers. 

During spring vacation, everybody was busy getting her dime card filled, and 
this brought us in a good sum. And the interest and help of the State Clubs has 
been especially gratifying. We must not forget to mention the energy and zeal 
with which the Press Board has worked to keep Simmons before the public. 

The Endowment Board is grateful to everybody for help and enthusiasm in 
carrying out everything we have undertaken. We haven't our $3,000,000 yet, nor 
even our first million. But we're well on our way toward it, and, as we work, are 
happy in the thought of what Simmons is to be. 




I wmm 

Our Alumnae are at Work for Endowment as Well as the Undergraduates, 
Only Their Undertakings are on a Larger Scale.

Secretary- Treasurer 

THE Ellen Richards Club is now rounding out its third successful year. The 
Club was founded to stimulate an interest in all scientific subjects, and to 
create a spirit of friendship between faculty and students of the Science School. 
Meetings are held from time to time at which outside speakers are invited to present 
their views. This year we have made it a point to hear our own instructors on 
various subjects, making most of these meetings open to the student body. Scien- 
tific lectures are alternated by social gatherings. 

All Seniors and Juniors taking the General Science Course, also Seniors pur- 
suing a thesis course in biology, chemistry, or physics are eligible for membership.

Civic League 

CIVIC League covers one of the broadest and most extensive fields in College, 
for besides having, a distinctive organization of its own, its function is to co- 
operate with "any organization interested in civic or social affairs." This year its 
activities have been many . Primarily it has aimed to bring to the girls a knowledge 
of the social, political, and economic conditions in those countries where world 
attention is at present most closely centered. To this end, it has as far as possible 
secured speakers native to the country to be considered, Dr. Hsieh of China, Mr. 
Gayadeen of India, and Mr. Yang of Korea, all of whom gave excellent expositions 
of their subjects. Mr. Ben Franklin Allen, who spent last summer in Germany 
told of his observations there, and at the time of the opening of the Disarmament 
Conference in Washington, Mrs. Florence Kelley spoke on "Disarmament." 

Civic League conducted the Red Cross Drive. It has throughout the year 
kept the best current magazines and newspapers within easy reach in Students' 
Room, and it has conducted an unusually good clipping bureau and a bulletin 
board on which items of unusual interest in all fields have been posted.

The Academy 

THE Academy, the honorary society of Simmons, was founded in May 1918, for 
the purpose of recognizing excellence in scholarship — to encourage interest in 
those courses of study which are of a liberal character, as distinct from the courses 
which are of a technical or professional nature, and to recognize accomplishment in 
those studies. 

In a college primarily vocational, gradually the need and the desire for some- 
thing academic, something totally apart from specialized training, had made itself 
felt. This society was the embodiment and the expression of that need and desire. 
Interests which, before the Academy came into existence, had no special sponsorship 
outside that which exists directly between teacher and pupil, the Academy endeav- 
ors to recognize, foster, and make fruitful. 

"For if the vocational is that by which in the end Simmons stands or falls, it is 
none the less true that the Simmons ideal has ever been to liberalize rather than to 
mechanize, to focus rather than to narrow, to educate as well as to train, to look 
toward making a life as well as toward making a living." 

Membership in the Academy is open to both graduates and undergraduates 
who have attained fifty per cent A points, or twenty-five per cent A points and 
ninety per cent A and B points, in all academic courses.

A MAGAZINE with a three-fold purpose— behold the Simmons College Review! 
A monthly periodical can scarcely hope to take the place of a weekly newspaper 
— we do not claim that distinction; but in each issue there is represented as large a 
variety of interests as any one magazine can compass. The big divisions consist 
of alumnae news and interests, events and affairs concerning faculty and admin- 
istration, and the in-and-about-college activities which interest primarily the girls 
now attending Simmons. It seems unreasonable to assume that every undergradu- 
ate will be interested in every department of the magazine, and we doubt whether 
the alumnae read the school news with avidity; but if we can give to each, some- 
thing of first importance to herself, almost shall we have attained the ideal. 

During this year the Bulletin Board of the Simmons College Review made its 
initial appearance and has been kept full of interest by newspaper clippings and 
items of general appeal.

EACH Microcosm Board realizes that the heavy demand on its time could be 
made less by better organization. This year we have had the maximum amount 
of co-operation from students and faculty, but we need something more. We need 
something in the nature of a competitive system, so that the incoming Board will 
work up from freshman year, will help the acting Board with the technical details 
which take so much time, and in so doing will be better prepared to take on the 
burden themselves. 

To Miss Diall, who has given so much of her time in the interest and help of 
this Microcosm, and to Mrs. La Forge, who has guided our ideas to a more artistic 
ending, the Board expresses its most earnest appreciation. The Editor extends 
thanks to Beulah Havens for collecting of snaps, and to the senior editors, especially 
Frances Russell, for their work on the write-ups. To every member of the Board 
the Editor wishes to express deepest gratitude. 




The 1 922 Mic Show 


Shall we ever forget that pleasant opening of our annual musical riot? We 
shall not. Lo, the curtain rises on an exquisite rural scene, an entrancing vegetable 
chorus, clad in lovely shades of green crepe paper (Mary Lou "Walker's genius, plus 

no meals, three or four o'clock in the morning, and 
the disposition of a saint) against a background of 
cornstalks, in the center of which, to use Lou's words, 
is an "indistinguishable lump of something," and 
nearby, a couple of suit-case ends, which turned out 
to be O. Whotta Egge's foot impedementa. Sweet 
O. Whotta! A long, lean carrot-headed lover, whose 
devotion to Pippin was in no way enhanced by 
the deafening crash of royal purple against scarlet — 
a long, lean lover, who was presently combining the 
sugary abandon of a modern flapper with the less 
subtle flavor of life among Ma's pigs and chickens. 
What would dear Shakespeare have said to Pippin's 
enraptured glory — of Pippin done to a heart-rending 
death by two (2) feet of wieners — mourned by a 
sobbing Anthony who would undoubtedly have lost 
his garters in his emotion, had he worn any to lose. 
AND THAT COW! ! O priceless contribution to Egge Vue, behind which 
Peg Gallinger and Vera Smith went down to immortality. It is too bad that all 
the audience could not have witnessed the only factor at an otherwise horrible 
dress rehearsal — the only thing i perhaps which kept the cast from flinging itself 
into the Charles River in absolute despair! When Pebeco heaved upon the stage, 
the cast retired in hysterics. Peg's insatiable desire to see what was going on, from 
her unfortunately sequestered nook in the cow's hither extremities, accompanied 
by a plaintive request: "Well, which feet shall I cross?" resulted in the immediate 
assemblage of buckets and mops to gather up our tears of joy. 

For the arrangement of the race to the city goes the tin-plated crown for 
ingenuity of travelling devices. Had the electric fan parted company with Hickey's 
ironing board, had Pippin's passionate endeavors to row in a bushel. basket produced 
a less harrassed expression, or O Whatta been one inch shorter, all would have 
been lost. 

Nor can Pippin's subsequent adventures on the Fenway be ignored. True 
she was mussed, but undaunted when she emerged from the burlap bag from the 
Salvage Shop, firmly clutched by Splashmi. It is fortunate that Splashmi's weight 
was more or less concentrated in one place, in fact not stationary, else the stage 
might not have borne the strain so well. 





We were again indebted to the costume committee for the brilliancy of the 
Simpformee Band, whose crimson swallow-tails, stiff shirt-fronts, brass buttons, 
and white trousers at once put our collective eye out — as did their amazingly 
perfect discord our ear. That immortal line of Tarvia's "Ah's gwine to stay here 
'till mah feet blos'som" was a center around which the typical freshmen revolved — 
bounced — undulated. Philuppa Phiall's name should be affixed by the words 
"Follies of 1947" at least — her air of tolerating hauteur combined with a sort of 
kittish swagger should have landed her as a musical comedy star of the first water. 
And never, oh, never are the Thoro breds, a symphony of pink and white precision, 
to be forgotten. 

A little soft music — Alphonse! Pippin's tragic end approaches. Enter on a 
darkened stage a gruesome white-clad band, decorated with skulls and cross-bones — 
the Dormitory Snoopervisors. In hollow accents the head snoopervisor, unrolling 
before our concentrated gaze a strangely familiar length of paper, recites to Pippin 
her crimes. And under the shock of the accusation Pippin sinks to the floor, 
sobbing "Ma, your Pippin's Passing Out" (how oft that ditty chanted behind 
closed doors), and PLAIN DIES, while her heart miraculously ascends heavenward. 

Witness thereupon a glimpse of heaven, presided over by an irresponsible 
cherub with a halo entirely over her nose; witness the arrival of O Whatta Egg's 
red underwear, accompanied by himself, — of Ma snivelling with emotion, and 
looking a degree more awful than in Act I; witness Pippin's discomfort and smile 
of content upon the entrance of a little Fairy In Your Home, bearing a 1922 Mic. 
The chorus as it closed up may have been a little indistinct on the finale, but for 
PEP, NOISE, and ESSENCE of unadulterated joy, they WERE THERE! ! !

THE Y. W. C. A. has carried as its purpose the promotion of a Christian program 
on the campus and off, to the end that a Christian attitude of mind and prin- 
ciples of life should be further inculcated in the student body. 

At the beginning of the year a Maqua meeting brought back the spirit of Maqua 
and linked us closely with the work of the preceding year. The Budget was brought 
before a meeting so that the average general member might know whether or not 
the Association was giving satisfactory returns for the money entrusted to its spend- 

The Industrial program has held a large place in our year's work, and we feel 
that it has led us to a deeper realization of what our college life means to us as an 
avenue of service to others. 

Shall we dare to prophecy for the years of the Association to come ? Then let 
this rule of service be: 

"Measure thy life by loss instead of gain, 
Not by the wine drunk, but by the wine poured forth. 
For love's strength standest in love's sacrifice, 
And he who givest most hath most to give."

THE Simmons Unitarian Club has completed a very successful year. Teas have 
been enjoyed on the first Tuesday of every other month in the parlor at Peter-

The aim of the club is to create better fellowship among Unitarian students, 
but we would be glad to welcome any other girls interested in our meetings who 
would care to join.

MENORAH, the "Light" that heralds the way to the study of Jewish ideals in 
music, history and literature. 

1922 may truly, be called the "Renaissance" of Menorah ideals, not only here 
at Simmons where a deeper and keener interest has been felt in things Jewish, but 
throughout the university life in the entire country. 

The scope of Menorah has been broadened by the establishment of an Inter- 
varsity at whose monthly meetings Jewish men and women, leaders in music, litera- 
ture, and the pulpit, preside. In addition to its regular weekly meetings, two during 
the month devoted to the Study of the Yiddish Drama, Simmons Menorah forms a 
large per cent of the members present at the Intervarsity. 

Menorah here at Simmons is but a young society. That it has grown is due 
to the untiring efforts of its past workers. That it will continue to grow is the sincere 
and ardent wish of its present members.

THE lives of all great men are themes of undying fascination. Guided by the 
resplendent rays of our world-renowned and illustrious patron. Cardinal New- 
man, churchman and scholar, our Newman Club has zealously linked with intel- 
lectual pursuits, attainments in religious and moral principles. 

This year there have been many gatherings at the College and at the Cenacle. 
Illustrated lectures on Greece, Rome, and the Vatican have been given by the pro- 
fessors of St. John's Seminary while an interesting and beneficial address, "The 
Catholic Girl's Relations to Social and Business Life" was delivered by Mrs. Slat- 
tery, President of the League of Catholic Women. 

Filled with the sense of duty to our religion, we of the Newman Club feel that 
our adherence to its aims and purposes can best promote in our hearts and minds 
the deepest sense of love and loyalty to our college and the best appreciation of the 
noble benefits that it tenderly instills into our lives.

THE Christian Science Society of Simmons College has continued during 1921- 
1922 the endeavor to fulfill the purpose of its organization: to bring about a 
greater realization of friendship and co-operation among the Christian Scientists of 
the college; to welcome entering Christian Scientists; to increase its love and 
friendship for all members of the college ; and to offer to those so desiring, an oppor- 
tunity to learn the truth of Christian Science. 

A reception for all those interested was held early in the year. The regular 
meetings have been held every week in the Students' Room.

The Importance of Being Earnest 

OSCAR WILDE'S comedy is a play of humor, of subtlety, or contrast. Re- 
membering the degree to which it depends on conversation, its effectiveness 
was remarkable. 

We recall particularly Lady Bracknell's costume and makeup, as well as her 
aristocratic bearing. It will be long too before we will forget Gwendolyn's lovely 
orange gown, her personal attractiveness, her drawl, and exquisite humor. Abbie 
Condon's stolidness, as John, was maintained with careful consistency, and con- 
tributed a splendid voice where good male voices are so much needed ; a most per- 
fect bit of comedy was done by Iris Woodman, as Miss Prism, her adventures at 
Victoria Station (Brighton Line) bringing shrieks of joy from an appreciative au- 
dience. Mary Washburn, as Chasuble, added much in the support of Prism, and 
is to be remembered for sincerity of effort. A happy choice was made in the cast- 
ing of K. Willis, as Cecily; her naivete was bewitching! 

How can the most incorrigible of Bunburyists be described? Louise Gillis 
will probably never achieve anything which will outdo in absolute perfection that 
fascinating character. Yet the pattern of her efforts might never have been as 
distinct had it not been for the efforts of a cast who left us convinced of their being 
people, not automatons. To the Prop Committee and painters of that artistic 
setting, enough thanks cannot be given, and to Miss Franc belongs the most sincere 
gratitude of all. 





-to the Queen, God Bless Her" 

— Toast and Marmalade, Vol. 6 


PAY back in an early Mic Show we remember Lou Gillis as a gorgeous actress 
in brown, delivering honeyed accents to the open-mouthed freshmen stand- 
ing on tables in the back row. We recall with special delight her air of puzzled 
helplessness in that delicious satire on psychoanalysis "Suppressed Desires," when 
she appeared in a heavenly neglige, and was adorable. But when we consider her 
extraordinary aptness for toying with an English moustache, it is amazing to think 
of the casualness with which her genius in playing a male role was discovered. At a 
rehearsal of "Eliza Comes To Stay" she was asked to read the male part of Monty, 
in the absence of the original girl, and achieved her success in but one brief week of 
exhausting rehearsals. It is, however, in this winter's effort of the Dramatic Club, 
in Wilde's "The Importance of Being Earnest," that she rose to such superb 

Lou Gillis ! We have a composite picture of gloriously idiotic figures enhanc- 
ing Mic Shows — dodging the curses of a weary cast — and of an irreproachable 
gentleman lounging at complete ease throughout several plays — smoking with a 
perfection that drew tears of envy from us — and of a gay, inimitable smile from 
twinkling blue eyes that made the most stony-hearted of us her slave. It has been 
acting done with a minute attention to detail which has never been surpassed even 
by the great Daniels, a carefulness in which carriage, walk, facial expression have 
contributed to an absolute ease of manner, so natural as to make us recall herself, 
with a start of disbelief, done so quietly, with no heroics, no bluster, no aggressive- 
ness, no artificiality, no desire for self-aggrandizement. 

The Dramatic Club has been, and will be more and more, one of the most sig- 
nificant elements in our undergraduate life. To this single little candle we attribute 
so gratefully, some of its happiest illumination, by which other little candles may 
be so easily lit. 

We mean it, Lou — aye, mon frae our heairrrts ! ! 




"The Irresistable Marmaduke" 

Ernest Denny 
March 3 and 4, 1922 

IF people ever doubt that "Simmons Is Awake" we can point with pardonable 
pride to "The Irrestible Marmaduke," that thriller of the mysterious double role, 
and the two shifts of scenery, including that sumptuous brown-stained setting with 
the rose curtains, through which could be seen the garden under the rays of a pro- 
fessional sun set. 

But all this is beside the main point, which is Marmaduke himself. Words fail 
us. His success is best measured by the quickened heart-beats of under and upper- 
classmen alike, as Peg made lightning changes from one Marmaduke to the other, 
with equally amazing cleverness and manly charm. 

Pat was a lovable, impetuous little imp of a heroine, who played up adorably to 
Marmaduke 's aspiring advances. 

They were supported by a cast of such wide talents and mirth provoking quali- 
ties, that their characterizations are never to be forgotten : the helpless Lady Althea ; 
the domineering Lady Susan; the "Wyley Bird;" the Juggernaut of the terrible 
eye-brows, and the kindly old Irish Doctor. 

In many ways this was the most ambitious play the Dramatics Association has 
ever attempted, and its success was in a large measure due to the help and encourag- 
ment of its coach, Miss Sleeper.

Musical Association 

IN judging the organizations of Simmons we must consider the limitations. No 
group of girls can work together until the best part of the day is over and then 
anything accomplished means real work. 

The splendid type of concerts we have given this year stand for a great deal of 
individual effort and real work. At our Annual Combined Musical Clubs Concert 
on January 27 we presented a first-class program with several interesting numbers 
that proved that "something different" generally "takes" well. Much of the 
success of the evening was due to the unusual talent of our charming violiniste, 
Miss Carmela Ippolito, and to the untiring efforts of our directors, Mrs. Slack and 
Mr. Lansing. 

We cannot, with any degree of modesty, shout from the housetops the elating 
news that we "made a hit" at Technology, but we state with no little pride that 
"with song and stringed instruments" we have opened the gates upon a new field 
of opportunities and perhaps established a precedent in the form of an Annual 
Simmons Concert there. If our wildest dreams are realized we shall all, as alumnae, 
be proud to remember that thru our first efforts the seeds of an amicable social rela- 
tionship between the two vocational schools were sown. 

While our work at the Temple Israel was not quite up to par we met our emer- 
gency in a most creditable manner and showed that Simmons girls are always 
"ready for service and worthy of trust". 

One of the most promising divisions of the Association is our Choir. Through 
the good fortune of obtaining some choir music especially compiled for women's 
voices by Arthur H. Ryder, organist at the Harvard Street Church in Brookline, we 
have been able to present many of the well-known masterpieces. 

Simmons music is ever increasing in its quality and popularity. As a watch- 
word to those who are following, we who are leaving say: "CARRY ON! BE A

Simmons Night at the Pops 

AFTER the regular season at Symphony is over, many of the members remain 
to play at the Pop Concerts. In the past such colleges as Harvard, Tufts, 
Tech, Amherst, and Dartmouth have had special nights. Simmons is the first 
woman's college in the history of these concerts to reserve a night. 

The program includes several of the class prize songs, which are played by the 
Symphony Orchestra, the singing led by members of the Simmons Glee Club. It is 
with much feeling that the students and graduates join in the singing of the College 
Hymn, which closes the first part of the program. The event of "Simmons Night 
at the Pops" has already become one of the spring traditions, which not only under- 
graduates, but alumnae and friends of the College look forward to. Marion Fitch, 
'19, is in charge.

SIMMONS Athletic Association began another successful year in September 
with plans for getting hockey right under way. The season went off with a 
gusto and the champions were well toasted at the hockey dinner when all teams 
gathered at the Refectory. The outstanding lesson of the season was the super- 
iority of team play. 

The basketball season began directly after Thanksgiving. The plan of playing 
sister classes for the cup was abandoned and this year each class played every other 
class first in a series of practice games and then in a series of cup games. This 
gives each class a fairer chance for the cup. 

The new point system for awards, which went into effect last year, has indeed 
proved its worth and gives everyone something to aim for. 

The Freshmen came up to expectations showing much enthusiasm and have 
continued throughout the year to support every movement. 

Miss Diall with her untiring interest in all that concerns us has been an inspira- 
tion and ever held us up to the highest of standards.

The basketball season began right away with class practice, which gave 6 
weeks' competition before choosing teams. There was no weather element to inter- 
fere with the season : we had team practice, ending in 3 weeks of interclass practice 
games ; then 2 weeks before finals the teams brushed up on technique, passing, and 
signals. The championship series was unusually interesting, the sister class method 
being substituted by playing every other class. Every team had lots of fun, and 
every team played better than it ever had before. But time and time again the 
Juniors took the ball right down the field as planned, and they were rewarded for 
scientific co-operation by winning the coveted CUP. The results of finals were: 
1922 vs. 1923—1923 1923 vs. 1924—1923 

1922 vs. 1924—1922 1923 vs. 1925—1923 

1922 vs. 1925—1922 1924 vs. 1925—1924 

We congratulate Phoebe Moorhead for winning the individual cup, and we wish 
Ruth Thomas, elected manager for next year, all success.

In more ways than one our hockey season was particularly successful this fall. 
In Beulah Havens we had an efficient manager, and the schedule, arranged for a 
larger series of games than usual proved interesting. The visit of the English 
Hockey team was a great inspiration, as we certainly saw the value of clean, open 
playing, of perfection of stick work and technique, and above all of team play. 
And it was their superiority in this team play — a perfect co-operation of individuals 
for one result — that gave the cup to 1924.

OUR cap and gown days seemed very far off on that momentous occasion when, 
a crowd of happy little freshman, brief and starched of skirt, and tightly curled 
as to the hair (as we used to say in Caesar) we scampered merrily forth from scandal- 
ized Brookline, bound for the Refectory and our Freshman Frolic. Did we have 
a good time? Just ask us I 

All the youthful impulses we had been somewhat bashfully concealing for, say 
eighteen years, came to the front and resulted in a scene of innocent and childish 
abandonment beautiful to see. Perhaps a sort of hang-over from Freshman Frolic 
has stayed with us to soften the austerity of our senior garb, for there have been 
rumors afloat that we retain a most unwonted degree of juvenile impulsiveness 
despite our black and white exteriors.

Sophomore Luncheon 

A RIOT of crimson roses in shiny silver vases, cunning waitresses with red and 
white head-bands, red candles, mascots, streamers on white table-linen, and 
the big twenty-two banner reposing in state over the speakers' table : that was our 
first impression of sophomore luncheon. But the memory that we carried away 
included this and much more — a spirit of good fellowship and a bigger, finer loyalty 
to the class and to the college. 

Ghost Walk 

FROM the Sun Dial to the eerie midnight strains of the Ghost Walk chant is a 
far cry. We were in truth the "ghosts of '22". No semblance of sophomore 
youth and jollity was present to reassure the onlookers that we were flesh and blood. 
On through the halls we pressed, voices rising to a wail, the gruesome phrases of 
Martha Dewey's masterpiece rolling from our tongues as naturally as if being ghosts 
was our chief business in life — (or after-life). The thrills and perilous escapades of 
that Hallowe'en night will be a memory forever for the "ghosts of twenty-two."

Sophomore May Day 

"Come out, dear seniors, 
Come out with us and play; 
We've something nice to eat, 
It's juicy, red, and sweet ; 
Folks call it short-cake.; 
We think it is a treat ; 
Oh hurry, seniors dear, 
It's made: 't won't keep!" 

WITH such material bait did we summon the seniors to frolic on the green at 
6 A. M., and having assembled a large and hungry crowd, we proceeded to 
satisfy their spiritual appetites with a gorgeous pageant — offspring of the fertile 
brain of Lou Gillis. 

Pageant, did we say? Rather call it a Ballet of light-footed Grecian maidens, 
dainty French dolls, Robin-Hood and all his merry men, and last but not least the 
captivating little London chimney-sweeps. 




Junior-Freshman Wedding 


WHEN 1922 was united forever in holy bands of matrimony to 1920, the 
prevalence of military weddings made it imperative that we do likewise. 
The outcome was one of the most impressive ceremonies ever staged in the long- 
suffering Refectory. Sally was the most winsome of brides, and Mary Kimball a 
fine soldierly chap who quite won all hearts, (including that of the bride). The 
families of the happy couple shed a sentimental tear when, under crossed swords, in 
true army style, the pair swore vows of eternal loyalty of the sister classes. 


Twenty- two having been left a widow by the departure of 1920 into the cold 
and cruel world, she decided to have another try at the orange blossoms, and took 
unto herself a charming young bride, 1924. Now it isn't usual in the best of circles 
for widows to marry brides, but '22 this time acted the part of dashing young 
groom, in the person of Jo Lindemuth. Jo's wedding suit from collar-button to 
patent leathers was all that could be asked of the most decorous of grooms. And 
those lovely brown curls! Many a feminine heart fluttered wildly when he took 
his fair Agnes "for better or for worse, till graduation doth us part." 

It was a truly affecting ceremony, though somewhat diverted by the decidedly 
unbecoming behaviour of some of the younger members of the groom's family. 
We'll wager the blase youths who attended the stag dinner before the ceremony, 
and wasted so much sympathy on the groom, would have liked to be in his shoes 
when they caught a glimpse of the beautiful bride. 





unior-oenior ricnic 

We have it at 

First hand 

That when Milton wrote 

"Hence, Loathed Melancholy" 

He was thinking of the 

Junior-Senior picnic. 

When this particular band of 


Embarked on the good ship Priscilla Alden 

For Nantasket 

And points west, such as 

Paragon Park, 

It would have taken 10 cloud-bursts and a couple of 

Old-fashioned New England 


To dampen their spirits. 

Since none of the aforesaid 

Tragedies occurred, but instead the day dawned bright and 


It can be said without 

Impugnity, that old Epicurus himself would have felt proud 

To claim us as holders 

Of his philosophy. 

After the provident juniors had tenderly administered 

All manner of indigestibles 

To their little senior charges, 

A few foolish ones donned 

Startling aquatic costumes 

And braved the chilly waves, 

All for the glory (we suspect) of having their pictures taken. 

Such simple pleasures also 

As three-deep 

And tug-of-war 




Were indulged in by old and young. 

(By young we mean the seniors, 

Since the responsibility of looking after such 

Irrepressible wild things as they 

Was soon born upon the Juniors, making them quite 

Quite serious by contrast — 

(Which isn't so very serious at that). 



Tiring of the sad sea-sands 

We sought the expensive and alluring Paragon Park, 

Where the call of 

The pernicious Roller-Coaster 

And the "Whip" proved too strong for even the weak and timid, 

And shortly all were intent on 

A dizzy whirl of emotions in their search for 

More thrills and heart-throbs. 

We wish that it could be 

Truthfully stated 

That on the trip home we were a bit more subdued than before, 

But since the truth 

And nothing but the truth 

Is to appear in this time-honored book 

The awful fact must be confessed 

That we sang and giggled till we thought our 

Poor sun-burned faces 

Would crack; 



A day perfect enough to make Carrie Jacobs Bond 


With envy.

Senior Housewarming 

HAS '22 grown up so very much, we wonder, since those Freshman Frolic days? 
No one who witnessed the hilarious scene in North Hall basement on the night 
of October 7th of our senior year would suspect that any change had taken place, 
or that three years had elapsed between the two occasions. "Of all the glad, mad 
days of all the glad, mad year" senior housewarming certainly walked off with the 
honors. From the minute Peg Durand, in full farm regalia, from the hip-pocket out, 
mounted to the "grand-stand" and announced that the "programmy" was about to 
begin, we collapsed into a giggling, hysterical mass of pure glee. 

The shrieks of delight that punctuated every word of our dusky minstrel must 
have been heard in at least one of the Newtons. Oke always did have the power to 
wrest a smile from a wooden image, but let it be here recorded she broke all previous 
records that night. 

And then those delightfully sophisticated class babies! Can we ever forget 
them? — or the vision of Mitzi Rowden weeping on Barret's ample bosom? And 
what of the mystic Dot Smith and her hypnotic band, the two diminutive Jeans, — 
and of the learned speaker of the evening, Professor McKee? 

Among other memories of that famous night there will always be outstanding 
in our minds a suspicion of hard cider, and the subsequent undignified behaviour of 
certain erstwhile respectable seniors. 




Christmas Party 

"The boar's head in hand bear I, 
Bedecked with bay and rosemary; 
And pray you masters be merry, 
Qui estis in convivio." 

YE Olde Time Christmas Party was in full swing. The boar's head had been 
brought in, and the gay lords and ladies and the peasantry' were alike enjoying 
themselves, feasting under the cheerful glow of the candlelight. Ye merrie jesters 
were at their usual tricks. Suddenly there blew in from the cold winter's night a 
band of strolling players. Ye Lorde of the Manor bade them stay, and thereupon 
they entertained the companye with the lively comedie of "St. George and the 
Dragon," which was received with enthusiasm, albeit the dragon was of such terrible 
dimensions that he frightened the more timid ladies in the Hall, but scared not one 
away from the happie occasion.

I remember, I remember 
That freshmen house of mine, 
So far removed from college 
In the wilds of old Brookline ; 
And how oft we rose and shivered 
In the chill and wintry dawn 
To file reluctantly to class 
E'er nine o'clock begone. 

I remember, I remember 

That peppy sophomore year, 

When Bellevue, Student's, East, and West 

Reechoed to our cheer. 

There wasn't much we ever missed ; 

We had some appetite! 

We haunted theatres and teas, 

And Durgin's Park at night. 

I remember, I remember 

Our happy junior days; 

We thought our freshmen very cute ; 

They copied all our ways. 

We had a Prom one summer night ; 

'Twill never be forgot, 

Though we took our room-mate's brothers, 

Cousins, uncles, and "what-not!" 

I remember, I remember 

Senior year came all too soon, 

And our caps and gowns felt very strange: 

We dared not think of June. 

We grew quite sentimental, 

And it came to be our craze 

To prattle of the pranks we did 

'Way back in freshman days. 



THE MICROCOSM :: :: :: 1922 

A Satire. 
Scene One: Back Yard. 

1922 enter trippingly, as freshmen, yodeling 

"We came to Simmons College, 
As green, as green as grass." 
Deafening blare of trumpets, as we proceed to blow our own horns. 
The upper classmen (sophomores NOT included) are completely taken in; 
hail us as the marvel class of the ages. 

Triumphant exit to the tune of the song that almost took the prize on track day. 

Scene Two: Bellevue House on the stroke of midnight, October 31, 1919. Stage 
very dark. White forms are dimly seen, wavering in an unsteady, perturbed 

Chorus: "We don't want to fight, 
But, by jingo, if we do, 
We've got the rep, 
We've got the pep, 
And we've got the seniors, too!" 

Scene Three: Any old station. Sign on black board: "All trains 1 hour late, if 
not more so." 

Chorus of weary-looking, heavy-eyed, down-at-the-heel juniors, wearing con- 
spicuous blue and gold bows. 

Enter sprightly 1924's, with attendant baggage, including golf sticks, bird- 
cages, hat boxes, bags, AND more bags. Juniors and freshmen do a Paul Jones 
in efforts to connect with the ones they have been corresponding with all summer; 
— Give up the attempt. 

Juniors, carrying suitcases, bird cages, golf-sticks, etc. and each leading a 
frosh by the hand, exit to the tune of: 

"We've been working on the railroad, 
All the doggone week; 
We've been working on the railroad, 
Little freshmen for to seek." 

Scene Four: Library B, any Wednesday afternoon 1922. 

Enter not more than a half-dozen seniors in caps and gowns. Slink self-con- 
sciously into the front seats. Amid readjusting of tassels and mortar boards they 
arise and sing fully lustily : 

"Now our work is over and we go away; 
For a job that's soft and easy let us pray; 
How we wonder what the college e'er will do-oo, 
In the years to come sans 1922! ! ! "

I. Quiet Rules: 

Each student is urged to adopt an individual noise, to be faithfully kept in 
order that the Matron will be able to tell who is not in. Variety of noises 
will be appreciated. 

II. Care of House Rules: 

Tacks for banners, pictures, etc., may be obtained from the Matron for a 
small sum. 

All thoSe who can cook are requested to do so in their rooms, as this will 
cut down the expense of meals. 

Students are requested to equip themselves with the latest electrical ap- 
pliances on the market, so as to lighten their labors. Vacuum cleaners are 
provided for every house. Students are earnestly requested to smoke only 
the highest grade of cigarettes, as the cheaper ones offend the aesthetic 
sense of the more particular imbibers of the weed. 

III. Light Rules: 

Leave shades up when lights are turned on. It gives a cheerful appearance 
to the dormitory. 

IV. Misdemeanors: 

No student will graduate unless she has obtained at least one misdemeanor. 
However, it must depend on individual effort, and is awarded only to the 

An aluminum loving cup is presented at the end of the year to the girl re- 
ceiving the highest number of misdemeanors. 

V. Chaperone Rules: 

Due to the fact that Simmons College is located on the FENWAY, the fol- 
lowing rules will be observed: 

That no student shall go out at night without a masculine escort — preferably 

That students must not come home from the movies or theatre at night 
with empty stomachs. 

That, for the honor of the college, no girl allow herself to be seen in public 
in anything less nobby than a Rolls Royce-. That two seniors may go 
out alone, but ONE senior must be accompanied by a man. 
That freshmen may not leave the safe harbor of the dormitories unless 
they have qualified by presenting a certificate of vaccination, a passport, 
quarantine badge, and a dose of anti-toxin, and have passed the "purity 
All Rules should be conscientiously obeyed when students are visiting their 
families and friends over night. Lights should be out promptly at 10.30. No 
baths must be drawn after ten o'clock. Remember it is an important part of the 
Honor Spirit to live up to these rules even when you are not under the direct care 
and infiuence of the proctor.

On your left, ladies and gents, is Simmons Preparatory School for young ladies, 
preparing them how not to earn their living. Notice the glass roof — that is where 
the Household Ec girls raise bread by attracting the sun's rays scientifically, and 
concentrating them on mirrors. That object on the top is not a weathervane; it 
is a watch tower. The President stands there with watch in hand, and when 
the instructors are two minutes late they are instantly discharged. If five min- 
utes late, the class is discharged. 

That in the rear is riot a botanical garden; it is a mushroom bed. Miss Diall 
uses it for field hockey. On the right is the famous Dump — famous for every- 
thing, especially mounted police. This setting is said by landscape decorators to 
be the most decorative in the country. 

We will now approach South Hall. It is on the east side of North Hall. 
It is considered by some to be one of Boston's most comfortable penitentiaries. 
After gazing at this edifice, we will carry away a charming mental picture of milk 
bottles on the balconies, and a tennis court which is fine for skating. 

Why go in, when one can visit Pete House by travelling north by south east, 
turning to the left, taking three turns and a somersault to the right, and walking 
backward the rest of the way. 

Where are the students ? Oh, most of them are not on campus anyway. They 
are populating Brookline. 




When the 8 o'clock sign goes up just as you are starting the morning mara- 
thon across the colonnade. 

When the girl ahead of you in the lunch room takes the last strawberry short- 

When your pen runs dry in the middle of a long transcript. 

When you find, at the end of a speed test, that one hand reposes on the row 
above the customary asdf, etc! 

When you start the day with a FIRE-DRILL at six a. m. on a frigid morning 
in February. 

When the biscuits burn on your first junior luncheon day, and the Household 
Ec Faculty en masse are your guests. 

When you have to sit around from Tuesday, waiting for that Friday afternoon 
exam in your elective.

It is essential that the person desiring the book must have been enrolled on the 
list of eligibles upon the day of christening or as near thereafter as is compatible 
with the circumstances. After that the process is quite, quite simple. 

To obtain a card, fill out the following questionnaire: 

1. Are you of American parentage, or do you live in Chelsea? If answer 
is no, write a synonymn for epidemiologist in the upper left hand corner of the page. 

2. Which would you rather do, go to Simmons, or get a good night's rest now 
and then? 

3. Who wrote Longfellow's "Paradise Lost?" Answer YES or NO. 

4. What would you say if you heard of a Simmons student who was sighing 
for something to keep her busy? NOTE: Your reply will be held strictly con- 

5. Have you somewhere tucked away in your cranium the idea that this 
library is run for the benefit of the reading public? — If so, WHERE did you ever 
get such a quaint notion? 

If you still want a card, after answering these and two hundred other posers 
in the same vein, you may secure it in the usual way by applying to the Depart- 
ment of Red Tape for a gilt-edged certificate. 

Oh, Rising-bell, I oft have heard, 
And, hearing thee, grown pale ; 
What shall I call thee? What dire word 
Is adequate to my tale ? 

While I am drowsing in the morn 
Thy shrill report I hear ; 
It echoes down the corridor 
And pierces every ear. 

Who knows what thoughts of ill-intent 
To every mind you bring; — 
With groans the early hour is rent, 
At thine insistent ring. 

But, blow you ere so loud and long, 

One refuge we can seek; 

We yawn, and to our pillows white 

We turn the other cheek. 

N. B. (Said refuge applies only to Sundays and holidays).

Earth has not anything to show more rare; 
Dull would he be of soul who could pass by 
Our DUMP, so varied in its symmetry. 
Upon its bosom it doth like a garment wear 
A fringe of pins from blond or auburn hair, 
Shoes, bottles, pens, bric-a-brac, and tin cans lie, 
For us to stumble on as we pass by; 
Making the staunchest pick her way with care. 

Never did weary pilgrim homeward turn and creep 
Past barbed- wire fence, and over rock and rill, 
Without a grateful sigh, both strong and deep, 
For crooked paths that ramble at their will, 
To think, while she from crag to crag did leap, 
With our DUMP gone, life surely would be NIL!

Who is it that, anon and now, 
With pleasant smile and courtly bow, 
Gets side-tracked in the corridor, 
Behind a bulletin board or door, 
While waiting for the motley crowd 
Of students with their comments loud 
Concerning quizzes, cuts, and classes — 
Trademarked with pens and horn-rimmed glasses, — 
To go before him — woman's due — 
But here at Simmons something new! 
Who is it, but our bonny Scot? 
And we who, lucky in our lot, 
Can each day hear the brogu-ish fall 
Of words, or rogue-ish slam withal — 
In Governmental classes daily, 
We push our Conklins almost gaily, 
With due thanks to the Powers that be 
That they in a wise hunch did see 
The antidote in MacDonald's beam 
From the drowsiness of 116! 

Broke, broke, broke, 
Ere the weeks have numbered three, 
And I would that my monthly allowance 
Had lingered longer with me. 

Oh, well for the strong of will 
Who can keep their purse strings tight ; 
Oh, well for the stern math shark 
Whose accounts always balance right ! 

And the flushed of purse go on 
To their orgies of french-frieds and steak, 
But, oh, for a touch from some generous hand, 
And a crisp new green-back to break!

European Plan 

Oct. 29. — Simmons-Centre College Dance actually comes off, after many telegrams and reports 

and anxious moments. 
Nov. 10. — North Hall basement turned into a work-shop for Connie and Lucinda. Garden scene 

worthy of an Urban is under construction. 
Nov. 11. — Armistice Day. We express our thankfulness in sundry ways — both for Peace AND for 

the holiday. 
Nov. 14. — We are introduced to the ''Daily Dessertation." It becomes a fixture at once. 
Nov. 17. — Student Government Conference at Simmons. We take a vacation from studies and 

devote ourselves to welcoming the delegates. 

General skirmish to find rooms in which to park ourselves in between rounds. 

"Importance of Being Earnest," featuring the one and only Lou Gillis, leaves us weak 

with mirth and speechless with admiration. 
Nov. 18. — MORE Conference conferring. Blue Bus tour, teas, AND the Open Meeting, followed by 

Alumnae reception. 
Nov. 19. — End of Conference. 

Sophomores win hockey finals and Harvard beats Yale. (We like this order. ) 
Nov. 21. — Hockey Dinner. 
Nov. 23. — Many P. G.'s suffer in consequence of the prevailing style of wearing hats and gloves and 

bags to classes. 

Annual dash for the train at noon. 
Nov. 2S. — Back to the old grind — but reinforced somewhat by memories of turkey, mince pie. and 

Nov. 29. — Big storm causes much havoc in Brookline. Freshmen burn enough candles to illuminate 

the Polar Regions during the winter months. 
Dec. 1. — President Lefavour speaks at Current Events. 
Dec. 2. — Stag Dinner for Sloaty is considerably enlivened by a moisl contribution from Dot Smith.

ONE of the difficulties in presenting the merits of milk is that the quality (other than the presence 
of cream at the top or of sediment at the bottom of the bottle) cannot be measured by ob- 
servation. Unfortunately, the consumer cannot know the degree of care maintained in pro- 
duction, transportation, handling and delivery. Only personal examination and chemical and 
bacteriological anlyses will reveal these facts. We, therefore, earnestly invite examination of our 
plant (which is open at all times), not only by physicians but the public as well, and urge the analysis 
of our products. To those who cannot avail themselves of these means we offer the responsible 
management of a firm whose business experience exceeds more than sixty years, whose system 
embraces every available scientific and sanitary equipment, and whose departments are placed in the 
hands of skilled managers. 

The richness and safety of our milk products are carefully guarded from beginning to end by 
our chemical and bacteriological laboratories. Careful attention has been given by us to provide 
in our general supply the best obtainable milk for the market price. The milk is from dairies regularly 
visited by our inspectors and those of the Boston Board of Health. Our entire supply (with the ex- 
ception of Hampshire Hills Certified) is pasteurized at our City Plant by the latest improved method. 
The bottles and cans are thoroughly cleansed and filled and capped by sanitary mechanical apparatus. 
Cleanliness is provided for by ample lavatory facilities and by the supply of clean, white, sterile 
suits from our own steam laundry. 

Our laboratory is completely equipped for the preparation of Modified Milk in accordance with 
prescriptions from physicians. 

Our delivery Service covers Boston and its suburbs with Summer Delivery at Winthrop, Nan- 
tasket, and Scituate. Baggage or express shipments are made to other points.
